Desktop Display Dead or Invisible

(I'm in Fedora Core 2 with Gnome.)

For some unknown reason, (1) I can no longer see files in /home/USER/Desktop, (2) I cannot launch Terminal from clicking on the wallpaper, etc.

I'm trying to see it again. Everything else seems to work. Nautilus seems to be running (at least when I launch the explorer from the Red Hat button).

Any help would be appreciated.

I SHOULD have said that I can't see the Desktop files on my desktop, overtop the wallpaper. (If I launch the Nautilus explorer, everything is still there.)
